Autocad 2011 3D Modeling Essentials (11 Edition)by Munir M. Hamad
Synopses & Reviews
This book demonstrates in very simple step-by-step procedures how to create 3D models, modifying them, setting up cameras, lights, assigning materials to objects, rendering, and printing. Unlike many AutoCAD competitors, this book covers only the basics and uses mixed units e.g., inches, meters, feet, kilometers, etc., to illustrate the myriad drawing and editing tools for this popular application. AutoCAD 2011 3D Modeling Essentials includes 45 exercises or mini-projects that complete small projectsa from concept through actual plotting. Solving all of the exercises will simulate the creation of a real life project from beginning to end, without overlooking any of the basic commands and functions in AutoCAD 2011. Use the accompanying DVD to set up all the drawing lessons and projects in the text, see all of the book's figures in color, and draw with a trial version of AutoCADA(R) 2011.
